PLANTS SLITHER LIKE SNAKES

Poetry By: Philip Roberts
Science fiction



Plants with the life force
And the mobility of,
Animals at hunt.

Plants with the life force
And the mobility of,
Animals at hunt.

Slithering like snakes
They wrap around the necks to,
Throttle human prey.

Moss that closes upon
Passers-by like a stomach,
Closing round its food.

Growing through rib cages
Into bony mouths, then out
Empty eye sockets.

Bones glowing whitely
Startlingly in contrast to,
The dull, mossy green.
